The mole salamander (Ambystoma talpoideum
) is one of the few animal species said to be facultatively paedomorphic, meaning it can exhibit either a complex life cycle (CLC) by undergoing metamorphosis, or a simple life-cycle (SLC) by achieving sexual maturity as a larva, making A, talpoideum an ideal species for the study of life-cycle evolution (I).
Two local populations of the mole salamander Ambystoma talpoideum (Caudata: Ambystomatidae) were previously found to have similar phenotypic values for per capita fecundity and life-history pathway (paedomorphosis and metamorphosis), but to have different genetic bases for those traits (Harris et al.
Three populations of Ambystoma talpoideum, located in Aiken County, South Carolina, USA, were chosen for study: Ellenton Bay (EB), Flamingo Bay (FB), and Ginger's Bay (GB).
These six species are mole salamander (Ambystoma talpoideum
), tiger salamander (A.
